Non-Surgical TMJ Therapy

In the majority of cases, TMJ Syndrome comes from having an incorrect bite or malocclusion. Malocclusion means that your upper and lower teeth do not close together in the correct way and are misaligned causing trauma. This misalignment can be due to previous dental work, an automobile accident or a blow to the face. Misaligned teeth cannot support your facial muscles correctly during chewing and swallowing. The muscles change to accommodate your malocclusion, causing a range of debilitating symptoms such as:

  • Headache, jaw, ear, or facial pain
  • Inability to open your mouth comfortably
  • Clicking, popping or grating sounds in your jaw joint
  • Locking of your jaw when attempting to open the mouth
  • A bite that feels uncomfortable or “off”
  • Neck, shoulder and back pain
  • Swelling on the side of your face
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Ear pain
  • Decreased hearing
  • Dizziness and vision problems or other similar problems
